Quandary Resolution 1318
Buridan's ass, apothecary, apotheosis, swain
Pultrinella waited while her young swain ran into the new age apothecary's where, unbeknownst to her, he requested a love potion and was given a choice between the charm that would make her love him as he was and the drug that would make him the apotheosis of manly beauty (but might leave him unloved), whereat he was suspended so long between the choices, like Buridan's ass, that sultry Pultrinella, who had already tired of him, gave up and walked away.
